The roller coaster continued as I said good bye to Mary and Sam this morning. I decided on three goals for today. A shower, water the outdoor flowers, and call Rogers about the terrible problems I am having with my iPhone.
I decided on calling Rogers first. It started so well with an understanding agent, who felt I had a case for a new phone. He then had to turn me over to another agent who could assess my phone and offer his opinion. I waited on hold for quite some time before I was cut off completely. I called back only to have to repeat almost everything once again and to be connected to......the agent who could assess my phone.etc etc. after hearing my story he preceded to tell me it was time to call Apple! Thankfully Barry had walked into the room at that time because I lost it. I started to cry. I didn't want to call Apple and talk to someone else and wait and wait and be connected to someone else. Etc.
Barry took the phone and I went into the bedroom. I am not really ready for the real world at all if it involves conflict, patience or persistence. I have used it all up. I'm raw. I'm tired.
Back to focussing on the task at hand and that is getting better.
In the meantime I have had two lengthy calls from agencies that want to come in and assess me as well as, our home for my safety. They will then offer suggestions for care while I recover. Next week I have three at home visits for assessments which I know to be exhausting. I have to steel myself to get ready for those. While I know they have my best interest in mind, it takes so much out of me that I am not looking forward to it.
So whether it is physical or emotional stress it is all a strain on our bodies and resiliency. Thankfully times like last night sitting by a fire on a beautiful summer evening can fill us up again, so we can carry on with recovery.
